I was wondering how to inform potential clients and investors about the products we were creating and, by chance, met with Michael at an innovation event. Michael introduced himself in a very interesting way, which got my attention. I followed up with Michael (he had his hook in me!) about his Storytelling Workshops. I attended a workshop, and it was a great thought provoker. Michael followed up after the workshop to ensure understanding and help develop my own stories which support my original pondering on how to inform clients and investors about our products. Its a very interesting approach. I would thoroughly recommend Michael’s workshops and the support he provides!

It was a very well delivered and engaging workshop which dealt very well with all the different personalities and businesses in the room. There was a great energy and felt everyone left feeling really empowered.

I am so glad that I had the opportunity to take Michael’s Storytelling workshop, It was an enjoyable and empowering experience, the venue was lovely too. Not only did I finish with an elevator pitch I am proud of, the follow up calls really helped me to remove some of the obstacles I was facing. I am in the early stages of my business. The follow up calls gave me, confidence, direction and accountability. I will continue to work on the things we have discussed knowing I have the support of the other people at the workshop through our LinkedIn group. The course is well worth the money, I would recommend it to anyone trying to find their brand/niche/story or a way to be remembered at networking events.

I am a Dutchman who is passionate about storytelling. No, I don’t have any jokes up my sleeves, I don’t tell children’s stories and I’m not even a published author - I don’t even like novels - but I do love writing short stories on Medium.com

In Staying Alive UK, we produce bespoke and visually impactful cartoons and animation campaigns, engaging audiences and giving them a unique insight into an organisation’s story and value proposition. Through collaborations, we also offer Augmented Reality to successfully support storytelling. And of course we deliver the ‘Share Your Story’ Storytelling Workshops as well as a Podcast with the same name. We have been active in Storytelling since 2011.
